Starts: 7/30/18
Length: 12 Weeks
This program should be used for an athlete whose goal is to race Ironman 70.3 New Orleans and has good fitness in the past 4-6 weeks.
Requirements: You should be able to swim at least 2000 yards, bike at least 2 hours and be able to run 60 minutes.

Our programs are designed for the age group triathlete who has a busy life with a full-time job, a family and / or other responsibilities. In this program, the longer workouts will be on the weekends, and the weekdays will consist of shorter workouts. There will be bike-run (or brick) workouts on most Saturdays and there will be a race simulation during this plan. During the training plan, there is testing every few weeks to assess your fitness and so you can re-adjust your Heart Rate and Power Zones if you train with a GPS/ Power device. If you don’t train with a device, that’s fine as the tests are still good training as you can measure improvement based on time and effort.

Our plans set YOU up for success. The main goal with this plan is to get you to cross the finish line happy and healthy. Mike has been coaching for 25+ years and uses that collective experience to help each individual athlete be successful at any level. His passion for the sport and wisdom gained from coaching thousands of athletes goes into designing a plan. He has taken the guesswork out of training with this plan, and looks forward to helping you too.

We leave no stone unturned in helping you reach your goals. Purchase of this plan includes:

  • A weekly training tip video in your plan.

  • D3 'Terminology', and 'Determining Heart Rate and Power Zones' documents

  • Instructional Videos in all 3 sports

  • Strength training and core workouts with accompanying videos

  • Inclusion in Team D3 and access to our private Facebook group to ask our coaches questions

WB Muscular Endurance #1 - 4x10' - 85 min

15' warm up - nice smooth spinning - then shift into a the big chain ring and into a gear that allows you to spin at about 55-65 RPMs. You will spin 4x10 minutes in this gear - HR should be mid-high Z2 - recovery will be 5' easy between sets - you will probably see HR drift into Z3 - keep the cadence up - this is where you build strength. 10' cool down.

WB Recovery

30 minutes to 1 hour - your choice. If you feel good go longer than 30 minutes. Start out at a very easy gearing, over 20 minutes gradually increase the resistance to a medium level (75% of FTP, RPE 7). Then gradually work back to the easy gear you started with over the last 10 minutes. If you are riding one hour, then repeat this cycle again of 20 minutes increasing resistance and easing back off on the last 10 minutes. Purpose is to loosen legs after long run or ride from day before or even a recent race. If it's nice out, feel free to spin outside, but stay in small chain ring.
